Unfortunately this event has been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change.

“I am a fat person, and I love my body,” declares Sofie Hagen, comedian, co-founder of the hit podcast The Guilty Feminist, and author of Happy Fat an honest, impassioned and funny debut book that’s part memoir and part social commentary.

Covering topics from shame and sex, to aeroplane seats, love, and getting stuck in public toilets, Happy Fat shows us how to take up space in the world without apologising.

Join Sofie for a celebration of the fat body: an agenda-setting call to arms, which asks us to re-evaluate our current beauty standards and how we define our self-worth. This event is sure to be hilarious, uplifting and liberating.
